Contentment Is My Wealth
And for the one, contentment is my wealth;Scrip = small bag; thorn = thorn-bush.
A shell of salt will serve a shepherd swain,
A slender banquet in a homely scrip,
And water running from the silver spring.
For arms, they dread no foes that sit so low;
A thorn can keep the wind from off my back,
A sheep-cote thatch'd a shepherd's palace hight.
